Episode #305H

KQED 9: Sat, Sep 20, 2014 -- 5:30 PM

Included: NewsHour Weekend travels to Denver to explore the effects of recreational marijuana legalization in Colorado. Even though it has been legal in the state for nine months, some people are still choosing to buy it on the black market, saying the legalization has creating two systems: a legal market for those who can afford it and an underground one among people of color. Special Correspondent Rick Karr reports. That, and the weekend's news, online and on-air.

Episode #304H

KQED 9: Sun, Sep 14, 2014 -- 5:30 PM

Included: NewsHour Weekend explores the rising tide of anti-Semitism in France. Jewish citizens say the growing threat of violence and anti-Israeli sentiment marks a wider, more dangerous anti-Semitism in the country, as thousands leave for Israel and other safer countries. In an effort to reassure the Jews of France that they are safe in the country, the government has taken strict measures against anti-Semitic demonstrations, while some citizens urge fellow Jews to oppose the extremists and stay in France. That, and the weekend's news, online and on-air.

Episode #303H

KQED 9: Sat, Sep 13, 2014 -- 5:30 PM

Included: NewsHour Weekend examines how the acquisition of America's largest pork producer by a Chinese company fits into China's plan to modernize its food industry. Even after the Chinese government announced the largest agrarian reforms in world history in an effort to feed its citizens, consumption is still skyrocketing as more people move into the middle class. Now, in the country that consumes half of all the world's pork, the government is tasked with improving the quality and security of its food supply. That, and the weekend's news, online and on-air.

Episode #302H

KQED 9: Sun, Sep 7, 2014 -- 5:30 PM

Included: For many students around the country, the new school year is just getting started. But in some states, school has been in session all summer long. NewsHour Weekend visits one in West Virginia where administrators, teachers and parents swear by a year-round calendar that has the same number of teaching days as any other school, just spread throughout the year. Special Correspondent Alison Steward explores how changing the school calendar can affect student achievement. That, and the weekend's news, online and on-air.

Episode #301H

KQED 9: Sat, Sep 6, 2014 -- 5:30 PM

Included: NewsHour Weekend examines the science of using dogs to detect cancer. For the past few decades, researchers have been exploring the possibility that cancer, possibly created by the growth of tumors, actually has a particular odor - and dogs can pick up on that smell. Some doctors believe this area of research may lead to more efficient screening methods and cancer treatment procedures. That, and the weekend's news, online and on-air.
